Peoria Pere Marquette Marriott

The City of Peoria is making a bid to have the LST 325 dock on its Riverfront. Peoria Public Radio’s Tanya Koonce reports:

The Council voted seven to four to extend an invitation to the LST Board, committing 500-thousand dollars to the project and pledging to assemble the remaining financing if the ship makes the move. That could amount to more than a million dollars.

  The historic and renovated Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette hotel opened at 3:00. The hotel staff presses a button at that time, and Peoria’s so-called Grand Lady becomes part of Marriott’s world wide hotel and conference centers.
